Pep praises David Silva

Pep Guardiola on David Silva: "He is incredible. At 33 years old, to fight and win duels, is really, really good. David is a fantastic player. He played here against a League Two club like an 18-year-old - like Phil Foden."

Pep on home crowd

Pep Guardiola: "I was impressed with the home crowd - they supported a lot. The FA Cup⁠ ⁠ is special for that reason. They used their strong points better than us. We don't play these kind of games every week. That’s why we are delighted today."

Pep on game

Pep Guardiola post -#ncafcvcity: "It was a really tough game. They scored a late goal which is typical of these kinds of games but Foden scored a great goal. Big congratulations to him. Big compliment to the guys today."

Pep praises Zinchenko

@PepTeam on Oleksandr Zinchenko: "All the time Oleks plays, he plays well. I admire the fact that he isn’t playing in his natural position. He has played against Eden Hazard, Willian, Shakhtar Donetsk, and it has always been a good level."

Pep on missing Mendy

@PepTeam on @benmendy23: "I said many times: we miss him. I miss him. He brings something special but he’s been a long time injured. We cannot complain too much but he is our only natural player in that position. We miss him but we can’t cry that he isn’t there."
